Water Lily Patch


Water Lily Patch, L. Daniel, 12 x 12
.
This painting is from another recent Plein Air Austin outing. We painted at Zilker Gardens, a beautiful botanical garden right here in our own backyard. This variety of water lilies always stops me in my tracks. The leaves reach up to the light, just like the lotus blossoms. They have such a dynamic quality!!!

Hi Laurel,

The leaves almost look like they're dancing. Just fabulous.

Such a subtle and beautiful image, all those soft greens, and then punctuated by that one dynamic pink!
